Wanted: Bigger Muffin Top


No, not one of those. Believe me, I’ve got that WELL covered. We baked some lemon and poppyseed muffins and everything was perfect with the recipe, except I think they need a bigger muffin top.


Tips followed so far include:

  • not using muffin cases and baking straight into the pan.
  • filling the muffin pan right to the top.
  • baking at 200 C for the first 10 mins and then turning down the heat for the rest of the baking time.

Any other tips to increase muffin top size (of the second variety) are warmly welcomed. In the mean time I will have to keep experimenting, and hope it doesn’t cause an increase of the first variety too much!

January Detox

A green tea and lemon loaf cake with lime and coconut frosting. Because everyone knows that Green Tea is full of antioxidants which eliminate free radicals in the body – therefore this cake HAS to be good for you!

I stumbled across Emma’s loaf cake at White rabbits and hungry habits, and was desperate to try the unusual flavour combination.

We didn’t quite follow the recipe, more made it up on the spot so ours consisted of whatever I thought should go in, plus what ever ingredients Baby Bear decided to chuck in on the way. It’s basically the recipe for Chai tea Bear-y cakes, but using Green tea with lemon instead, then topped with lime buttercream and dessicated coconut.

See we ARE being healthy!
